The Best Margarita Recipe? Here Are Our Top 7

It's "five o'clock somewhere," and a cold margarita is a fun way to enjoy tequila. 

There are so many ways to mix one, and who doesn't love a fiesta in a glass?

The best part of a margarita is that it'll take you to another place, where you forget your troubles.

Just ask Jimmy Buffett, who sang about "wastin' away again in Margaritavile." Some would argue the hit 1977 tune helped define his career as he paid tribute to the drink and his "lost salt shaker."

Whether you like your margarita recipe shaken on ice, or frozen, TheStreet compiled a list of the seven best margarita recipes with some help from Cooking Channel, Cooking Light Magazine, and some margarita recipe experts.

Pomegranate Margarita Recipe

Pomegranate Margarita Recipe
Pomegranates are only in season from September to February, so for some, it may be difficult to make this margarita recipe depending on the time of year.

It may not be for everyone since the berry is quite tart.  Regardless, this pomegranate margarita recipe is courtesy of celebrity chef, Tyler Florence.

INGREDIENTS:
1/4 cup pomegranate juice
1/3 cup Tequila Blanco (about 4 ounces)
1/8 cup Triple Sec
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 ounces)
Ice
Margarita salt, or sea salt

DIRECTIONS:

Combine all ingredients, except salt, in a blender and pulse until it becomes frothy and well-combined.

Rim glasses with lime juice using a lime wedge then dip in margarita salt.

Drop in some fresh pomegranate seeds in the bottom of the glass, if you have any.

Pour margarita mixture into the glass and serve.
